    I think I like the latest updates. The aesthetics aren’t always what I’d prefer (the big red numbers on the battle animation are a bit jarring), but overall I think there are some improvements here.

    I do appreciate knowing immediately how many units I’ve killed or lost. I like being able to close the battle box by clicking anywhere (allowing triple-click for battles). And now I can see on-screen how much each base produces. (Though, again, the design here isn’t my favorite. I don’t need a big picture of a base multiplied by the number I own. A simple “100 per base” next to my per-turn income would have sufficed.)

    The fact that my main complaints are aesthetic strikes me as a refreshing change. Good work.

    (While I’m here, why do I sometimes get this long string of characters representing my ‘sessionid’ in the web address when I open a game? When it is there, it screws up the greasemonkey scripts, and I can play my turns if I delete the part of the web address after the game id number, so what’s the purpose? Can we do away with it so I don’t have to keep removing it manually?)

    After using it for a while, I still don’t like the flash client. The battle animations look awful, they sometimes ‘stop’ for a few seconds.
    And the client goes crazy when I try to use my scrollwheel.
